was a frown. that is what romney is talking about. >> dana: the other thing, his message to the debate is return america to position of economic strength and growth. if you talk foreign policy, the economic policy matters because you want a strong growing america to become the lender not be the borrower. we're not on that path. romney not saying he could get it done and get us on a better path to be a stronger world player in the future. >> bob: what he said about iran, i would make the sanctions tougher. move the mediterranean fleet up near iran and the pacific fleet near iran, both have been done. >> dana: i thought you said he didn't give specifics. >> bob: he didn't. >> dana: those sound specific. >> bob: he said i'd move the fleets but they're already there. >> dana: we could apply more pressure to friends elsewhere who are giving iran cover.imbere would handle it. the criticism president obama and the administration refusing to meet with netanyahu and impaired relations with israel. here is romney's take. >> put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and friends and
, jobs. which cand date has a better policy on jobs and every time mitt romney talks about it in the debate or adyou saw the democrat line rose . for mitt romney, the next 30 days has to be that. and barak obama four year legacy is failure on crating jobs and why governor romney's approach is more aprorbable. >> and the obama people came back with a response. look at it and tell us what you found. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. i like to fire people. too many of those working are living pay check to pay check. >> 10,000 bucks in president obama and i both care about poor and middle class. i am not concerned about the poor. >> my policy will make thippings better for them. >> it is not to worry about those emp they should take responsibility. i am mitt romney and i approved this message. >> and frank, tell us what that tells us. >> it tells us negative ad does work. they are using romney's actul word said against him they show the contrast. romney's assertion and response and it is measured. there is no announcer and no angering music b
the obama campaign is saying and what the romney campaign is not. >> a favorite talking point of the obama campaign is mitt romney's economic proposals would simply reinstate the tax cut and deregulation policy that led to the 2008 financial meltdown. two things should be said about this claim. one is it's gone unanswered by the romney camp and the second is it's utterly invalid. the tax cut put in place under president bush in 2001 and 2003 cannot be blamed for the mortgage market collapse that triggered the great recession. in fact, they can be credited with helping the economy out of the recession of 2001, 2002, and with helping overcome the economic damage from hurricane katrina. by the way, that expansion, and the tax revenue it produced were sufficient to drive down the federal budget deficit for 2005 through 2007. this despite massive war spending. as for deregulation, president obama himself said former president bush put more regulations in place than he has at the same time frame. it is true that there is one bit of deregulation regularly blamed by the liberal economists for help
talking about stimulating growth. and, david axelrod, who talked about the brazenness of governor romney, which is utterly laughable, no one is more brazen than david axelrod, he is ignoring the reality, destroying what the governor has said. that is unconscionable, i think you will pay a major price for it in the pool. megyn: i want to get to this soundbite from governor romney from the debate. he seemed to be talking about the different approaches. >> that manically, there are three ways we can cut the deficit. one, of course, is to raise taxes. number two is to cut spending, number three is to grow the economy. because if more people work in a growing economy, they are paying taxes and you can get the job done that way. the president would prefer raising taxes. i understand. the problem with raising taxes is that it slows down the rate of growth. you can never quite get the job done. i want to lower spending and encourage economic growth at the same time. megyn: he is talking about broadening the tax base, because if you lower the taxes, people have more money, they spend more money,
have, our strongest allies, the european countries, eastern european countries. romney is talking, romney is channeling reagan. >>eric: take a listen to the obama, i am not sure it is the campaign or the super pac but an ad talking about romney's foreign policy experience. >> reckless. amateurish. that is what news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england saying the knee-jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. even republican perts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. earthquake amateur in. >>guest: did romney make a few mistakes? sure, that is what happens first time out of the box. the policies, though, and the substance, are what really makes the difference. it is not just pretty speeches. on the other hand, it is not just using the american military to push our way around the world. i found this speech actually really phenomenal. i commend him for doing it. >>eric: i asked the producer to put something over the weekend, the israeli air force knocking down a drone. i believe, i don't think
governor romney talking about the need to do that. i think also he will talk about having a fair approach that actually applies the laws that we have on the commonwealth of virginia but across the country. one of the things that we see with the border incidents i think most people want us to have a clear policy that we are working with the states not against the states to try to get that enforced. i think if governor romney does is that i think he will do well across the board with voters in virginia. >> geraldo: did you, kristine, enjoy the debate? >> i had a blast watching the debate. it was a lot of fun. >> geraldo: where did you watch t? at the pub or in church where did you watch it? >> i was actually with me family sitting on the couch. high-fiving everybody. >> geraldo: what did you think was the strongest moment, the governor's? >>> ry moment was strong from the way he walked out exuding leadership and confidence and he would not let president obama get away with this misinformation. there is a saying a lie runs around the world while the truth is still lacing up his sneakers. tha
to 20% essentially what romney is talking about, then people who make income, actually, their taxes go down in only one way, if they make more income, and that's the incentivizization to make more income because you're not giving back 35% to the government. when we lower marginal tax rates, we get more from the people output in the society. >> jonas, you believe we need tax increases in the long run, in the short run, what is going to get jobs. >> and there's nothing you can do to the tax code that isn't going to hurt the job market. >> lower the marginal rates. >> you say romney wants to lower the raets and remove the deduction, let's say he removes the mortgage deduction, home builder, you're going to hire more people, and if they remove it, hire more people, probably not. you're going to bring net knew revenue to the government. not going cut enough you're going to hurt the job market. now, specifically, if you hit the high end, like they want to do, let's say they did that, and yeah, that's, that's tax, when you tax people in the middle that is cost of hiring somebody so could actu
talked about his five boys, that was racist because it was romney suddenly calling obama boy. >> sean: how desperate are they? they seem they're freaking out, panic and desperate? >> they are. let's understand something, as every day comes in, the polls get worse, we go from dishonest -- we started with untruthful, now dishonest, and now lying. god knows what it will be by the end of this week. the point is -- let me just say this. this is the biggest debate victory probably since 1980. >> sean: it is. >> in terms of a single debate, in terms of the margin but more importantly what it did for romney was, the number of people it gave them a chance to see. the problem with the lying strategy, the people that watch "60 minutes," within five days they would have put up ads promoting their debate victory. the fact is it was big. it helped romney a lot. we went from 30%, almost doubling the 53% among uncommitted voters that he cared about people, his favorability -- i've been waiting for more polls. we finally got pew. some of the polls are slow on this. the thing i find is the election is
the ryan plan, you will notice, laura. is he talking about the romney plan. is he talking about the romney tax plan. the romney budget. and making it very clear for the first time and i thought he did a great job of it, talking about who is the boss and the boss is governor romney. >> laura: all right, lou, great to see you. have a great weekend. >> you too. >> laura: when we come right back, martha raddatz questions the can cats on abortion. -- raddatz on abortion. we will hear from both sides coming up. >> laura: thanks for staying with us, i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. in the unresolved problem segment tonight, just when we thought the so-called war on women debate was over, last night's moderator martha raddatz might have reignited an issue with a question about abortion and faith. >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or from their faith. our faith informs us in everything we do. my nate informs me about how to take care of the vulnerable about how to make sure that people have a chance in life. now, you weren't asked why i'm pro
, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though the unemployment number is down below the psych lodge call level at 8% on the stump in newport news, governor romney found a new way to use it. >> if you look back 60 years, at all the months we had unemployment before 8% before president obama. there were 39 months. in all 60 years with unemployment above 8%. under this president there have been 43 months. under one president alone. he does not understand what it takes to create a real recovery. i do. >> reporter: bill you mentioned the pew poll. the pew poll governor romney was seen as guy with new ideas. he was the one people trust to create jobs. bill: one of t
no passion, he doesn't understand what he's talking about and he doesn't believe it and saw mitt romney for the first time, a guy who is understands the economy, he looked presidential and people saw for the first time not through the lens of the negative obama tag machine here is a guy ready to lead our countries. >> mike: let me get michael in. you're a speech writer and written for a president. how does mitt romney take this great moment and make sthat he next debate? the expectation are going to be sky high on him and poor or low for obama. >> when you take the hill you've got to hold the hill. we've got a preview from president obama what the attack is looking at. that romney is lying in other words, to cover a radical agenda and i think, you know, romney is going to have to responsibled patiently and substantively and turn it to a more aggressive side against obama's record and values. and i think the man who showed up in denver can do that. president obama will be better in the next debate. he could hardly be worse. so, i-- (laughter) >> , but (applause) >> that's like saying th
this in massachusetts. if you talk to democrats in massachusetts, they say romney was a very good governor, that they could work with him. maybe obama saw this because the significance of the last 3 1/2 years in the obama presidency is there was never cooperation or rarely cooperation. no or very few bipartisan agreements. the only time they did something was when they brought joe biden in to negotiate with the republicans. so maybe obama sensed that. but i don't know -- it's worthy to investigate. >> sean: yeah. one theory i have, i want to ask you one more question about your theory. i would argue, $6 trilon in debt, very hard to explain away. i would argue that, you know when 2012 economically is worse than 2011, which was worse than 2010, unemployment in 2012, fewer jobs in this year than last year and the year before. things are trending down. obviously, that's troubling for the president in terms of trying to defend it. but back to your theory, if he was so bad that there something else going on, that could be troubling in and of itself. you know, we need presidents that are strong.
talked about this on sunday. i want to actual, we made a case that could be decisive because romney was so far down in the public image. more importantly, you know, sean, all of those numbers are very close. you can't say this -- the numbers have changed from what they were. there is more coming, potentially. more importantly, debates affect how you view the race and the candidate. romney's favorability has soared. he was upside down in favorability. even in the cbs poll, right after the post-pam of uncommitted voters, he went from 30% believing he cared about people to almost 53%, almost doubled it in 90 minutes. that's the movement that we care about. >> sean: listen, nobody's doubting -- i can -- with certainty say obama's going to show up. he's going to be aggressive. he is probably likely to over -- you know, go overboard. >> here's the obama narrative, simply, sean. fiattack governor romney as his campaign has, he drives up his negative and that improves his vote share. what his handlers are saying, you missed opportunity after opportunity to position governor romney as being
and steady commander-in-chief. mitt romney shows he would be the exact opposite. behind the tough talk he is erratic and unsteady and irresponsible on his audition in the world stage. would you agree with that. >> of course not. they can say over and over again. especially when romney talks about not setting a time limit. >> brian: let me bring you to afghanistan real quick before we run out of time. a reporter came out in a speech in washington and said the administration has been lying and there is a narrative coming out of the washington that is nonsense. she got out of afghanistan like you d and she said the taliban is gaining strength and we are not told the truth. that is a farrah phrase for word and that is her position. is it yours. >> the taliban is gaining strength and there is a narrative from administration. i want the narrative to be progress in afghanistan especially with all . sacrifice and surge and the guys who fought. but the political solution hasn't moved. karzai's government is corrupt and the taliban is gaining strength. it is not a pretty picture what of the world i
for romney. everybody's talking about how badly obama did in the debate. i'm talking about how great romney did. i think he explained his positions. he explained why taxing the rich won't work, because it's taxing the small businesses that create jobs. he's talked about the medicare issue. i think that this was a big win for romney. i think ryan will hammer it home. >> sean: they're going to sequester for six days biden? he can't come out in public? they're going to try to force his brain full of information? i just don't see that working. >> well, sean, maybe they take him off the trail for six days so he doesn't mess it up. >> sean: well, maybe mess it up -- >> there was no debate, they should still sequester him for six days. >> sean: probably for the rest of the campaign. you know, i want to go to your book for one second, because we don't have a lot of time tonight, but it's out in bookstores now. this has been something that a lot of conservatives have been concerned about. that is the growing influence and reliance on the united nations, worldwide taxes, which hillary mentioned just,
to correct you in the missed of the crisis, governor romney, you are talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate, rights in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they had put out earlier in the day in cairo. so we had the same position. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when the mullas in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called the assad a reformer when he was turning guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, democracy and individual rights. we should not be imposing devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values -- >> here -- >> it makes us more weak. it projects weakness. when we look weak, our adversaries are more willing to -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarky-- >> reporter: why's th
mitt romney is and was last night. i mean, if he was talking, he was speaking last night, he was lying. and look, mitt romney had a good night, but you know, even a, you know, blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> are these dirty attacks, calling mitt romney a liar. is it a good idea for the democrats. we're back with our panel. brian some suggest this is classless to come and attack mitt romney for lying when the president didn't seen prepared and shell shocked and that's the response. he was so shell shocked that mitt romney was lying that he didn't know how to respond. >> and mitt romney's facts were tricky, we don't have time for that. let's include john sununu, romney's surrogate who said that obama is lazy, incompetent. has no idea what's going on. on both sides comments being made and let's not make this one-sided when you're talking about it. >> clayton: is that fair, tammy? >> americans and i think the tea party is a good example of this want to be told the truth. we have impressions of these guys and americans are going to make up their own mind and we know that p

boss, barack obama, did not, hammer the 47% comoant that mitt romney said and was talking about how mitt romney believes that 30% of the american people are takers -- that's my mom, that's my dad, he sadism the obama campaign has to be very happy with what biden did there. i mean, i was surprised that the president didn't do it in the last debate. i think biden made a lot of strong points, i just don't know where -- did women find him likeable. the other thing, i thought about it midway through, the obama campaign may not care. i mean, they may have sent him out there to really descrive -- drive through the points. nobody's going to vote for president for whether or not they like joe biden. i would have made him more likeable. but it may have just been about scoring points about pushing through, bringing up the 47% and really driving it. >> paul ryan had the last word saying i think the vice-president knows words don't always come out the right way on that's 47%. we are getting a preview on how they may handle that. back to you in a empty. >> wonk one thing's clear, the vice-preside
him he's back in the game. i would say there was a lot of talk before the debate that mitt romney, his -- the chances in the race were slipping away so a lot of republican donors were looking at moving to congressional races and wanted to think about the senate and house races as a way to save runs, if you will, because they thought romney's chance mrs. over t shows he's back in the game. >> the vice presidential debate, a lot of people who werethis on the fence have been telling me that they got the specifics that they wanted from the romney campaign this week with respect to jobs and an economic plan, healthcare and a lot of other domestic issues. now we switch to domestic and foreign policy. ryan is a numbers guy. how do you think he'll match up to vice president biden when it comes to the economy first, foreign policy second? >> i think it will be an even match. biden was in the senate 36 years so he has a very good understanding of federal issues as well. but paul ryan jokes about how he's been reading federal budgets since he was 22 years old. so they both have a very long backlo
. patti ann: talk about that so-called debate bounce that romney got. looking back historically, when a candidate is perceived to have won a debate, how long does that bounce last? >> there has not really been any record of an event like the debate we had last wednesday night. four years ago there was absolutely no debate bounce. eight years ago very modest because we haven't seen a challenger win so decisively. we do know most bounces in and of themselves last less than a week in today's 24, 7 news environment. patti ann: we'll see what happens after the upcoming vice-presidential debate and beyond. >> it will be interesting. patti ann: yeah, that's for sure. thank you as always for joining us with the very latest numberss. bill: he was telling us last week to wait until monday morn. very interesting how that develops. >>> the break in a case of a missing 10-year-old girl. jessica ridgeway is her name. police say jessica was last seen on friday morning walking to school and then she vanished. police extended their search into the town of superior, colorado. that is a bit north of den
, right field and maybe we would view a better idea who mitt romney is. he will talk how we are going do get out of the black hole, what we will do the next four years and keep paul ryan to task and not talk about the grand ideas but, actually, telling us exactly what is going on. >> we thought we would get a lot of that, we get the specifics from congressman ryan, with his budget plan laid out but it doesn't seem like the republicans want him to talk about it. why? >> what you saw in the last debate, mitt romney had a chance to speak for 90 minutes about his policies and plans. the problem with the rallies when you cover them people are looking for the 30-second sound bite, not for a long, detailed expose. >>shepard: but bill clinton gave us specifics. >> no one has been more specific on budgets and entitlement reform than paul ryan. with regard to -- look, we are not going to negotiate with ourselves. the only people with the budget are the republicans with plans to save social security and medicare. >> that doesn't get us anyone. if paul ryan knows his numbers he is thought allowed to
here. talk coming out all of the questions was about ann romney and michelle obama. we're not talking a lot about them. ann romney will be hosting "good morning america" tomorrow. what factors, do you think if any these two women may bring to the election and what we might see over the next four weeks? are they a factor? >> look the general argument out there that, spouses of candidates don't tend to win them elections. they can be a net draw back if they don't do a good job, if they plub or become a center of attention but neither women have been doing that what they have both proven they're very effective campaigners for their husbands an shoring up their messages. in that regard they're adding some ballast to both. campaigns. in particular reaching out to women voters we were just talking to. they're mostly there as sort of side by side to keep their husband's message out there, rather than necessarily winning the campaign on their own. jenna: said before in context today. good if they're not winning the campaign on their own because they're not the ones running for president, righ
of people have pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. i mean, if he was talking, if he was speaking last night, he was lying. look, mitt romney had a good night, but, you know, even, you know, a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> it's the old classic a broken clock is right twice a day. >> so the argument is that president obama was so shell-shocked, i guess he got up there on the podium he was so shell shocked he couldn't believe the lies coming from mitt romney he didn't know how to respond for two hours. >> that's ridiculous. >> don't you think the voters would prefer the president's team to say you know what? he had an off night. he overprepared. underprepared too busy being president. mitt romney a liar that's the best you can do. >> maybe mitt romney did really well. congratulations to you. i can't wait to get to october 16th when we can try this again. >> you thought so much of the primary season mitt romney was running to the right of the party saying he was severely conservative all of these things he was saying to say how conservative he was. he
